hello, I have been trying for the past 2 hours to figure out why this is, and trying to fix it....

I have all but lost hope.

The title banner does not appear to fit the screen like it should. Everything else does. I have tried everything. When I change the banner.jpg to nothing.jpg it will fit.

Is it because of the dimensions of my jpg?
How should I resize it to fit?

please check it out for me...Thanks in advance

I got the URL, but I mean what "Title" banner?

I see a big blue header that stretches & distorts as the window is resized, then I see a bunch of link images that also stretch & distort as the window is resized, and a whole bunch of other stuff that stretches n' distorts as the window is resized :)

I'm in 1600x1200 with IE maximized, so your site doesn't seem to quite work the way you probably intend :)

the blue header at the top should fill the entire screen.

at my resolution (1024x768) the top header fills way past the screen, creating a scroll bar on the bottom.So it will not bend and stretch like the other tables.

I am going to assume that on your higher resolutions, it also may be too small. ie not fit 100%.

I am going to check it on 1600x 1200 on my other computer. But I know there will still be a problem.

thnks

To be honest, stretching images for your layout like that (and especially buttons with words on them tha you expect the visitor to be able to read) generally isn't a great idea.

IE's stretching abilities ain't too great, and they're better than many other browsers' abilities :)

so it would probably be a better idea to set a pixel width and center?

yup, Either go for fixed width, or use seamless tiling images.

Like at the top of this forum. There's diagonal stripes, which is simply a tiled background, then you've got the Ozzu logo hanging over the top left, with a transparent background outside of the actual logo, sothat the background shows through, then the text links at the top right.

Stretching the window doesn't cause the images to stretch, but it just repeats the tiled background :)

yeah that is a good idea, i use td background="url.jpg" for buttons a lot, and just write text over the background.

I suppose that is what I should do with that, and I can use images and text to go over it.

Thanks alot!
